Kinematics and shapes of galaxies in rich clusters

Abstract:

In this work we have studied the relationship between the kinematics and shapes of Early Type Galaxies (ETGs) in rich clusters. In particular we were interested to extend the kinematic morphology density relation to the richest clusters. We obtained data from FLAMES/GIRAFFE to probe the stellar kinematics of a sample of 30 ETGs in the massive cluster Abell 1689 at z = 0.183, to classify them as Slow Rotators (SRs) or Fast Rotators (Frs). To date, this is the highest redshift clus...
